Beach photographer

Posted by Miri Barak on February 21, 2004


I'm translating a series about chimps.
It is said about one of them:

"He used to be in a circus and he was a prop for a beach photographer. When he arrived in 1987, he was quite aggressive because of his painful teeth".

They are talking about a chimp that was saved and brought to a park.

My question: what doen it mean a beach photographer, could the chimp be a prop?
and how are his teeth related to that?

I'm afraid of doing a big mistake.
